According to the commentary track on their “When Dream And Day Reunite” official bootleg live DVD, during the first few minutes of the live concert Jordan Rudess had an equipment malfunction that played either the incorrect sound, no sound at all, or random notes 1/2-step upward in pitch. Nevertheless, Rudess mimed playing the correct parts as he realised they would have to be re-recorded in during post-production.
